Probably the most surprised I have ever been by a TV show, ever. I was surprised by how much I liked it. I was surprised by how good it was. I was surprised by the direction they went. I was all around SURPRISED. Cobra Kai follows Johnny and Daniel thirty-four years after the events of Karate Kid. I had assumed, much like everyone else, that this was going to be a shitty cash-grab of a show and was completely unnecessary. The fact that it is a YouTube Red show didn’t bode well for it either. I watched it anyway purely out of curiosity in what they could even do. What is absolutely amazing is that this show isn’t just great compared to what I thought it was going to be, it was just great!.. The show opens on Johnny, who has gone on to live a horrible life and is at an all time low. Immediately it paints Daniel as a complete asshole who capitalized on his karate championship. However the very next episode it switches it around and makes you perceive the characters in the exact opposite light. It does this multiple times throughout the season, never allowing one of them to be distinguished as the hero or the villain. Each one of them has an apprentice of sorts as well, a young karate kid that they have taken under their wing. What I especially like about their respective apprentices is that they seem to go in the exact opposite direction you predict of them. The arc of the season is spectacular as well, it really feels like these characters are different, that their lives are different, and it leaves you hungry for the next season.

Power Rangers movie review

What a huge let down… I went in to this movie excited and down right giddy to relive something treasured from my childhood. Power Rangers was not just something I was a casual fan of as a child, but something that I would sit down and watch almost daily. Hell, it made me feel like a ninja. The only thing this movie captured was it’s campyness. Unfortunately though, the Power Rangers show was campy in a fun way. This Power Rangers is campy out of just being that terrible of a movie… Power Rangers follows a few kids in a breakfast club like scenario of being trapped in detention. When a few of them and a few other randos bump paths in an old abandoned open pit mine, they discover glowing crystals that give them powers. It is then revealed that they must save the world from the worst take on Rita Repulsa I have ever laid eyes upon. And I’ve laid my eyes upon some pretty shitty things. On top of having shitty fight scenes, cringe-worthy dialogue, a plot with a thousand holes in it, a horrible story, a stereotypical hero premise, and just super weird characters that are unrelatable in every way, it makes you sit through it all for just over two hours. Which, strangely enough, is two hours more than I wanted to keep watching this movie.
